Voluntary Groups Honoured as Sewa Pioneers Award Winners 2013
Date:3/21/2013

footpaths of the Grand Union Canal in West London where 80 sacks of litter were collected by 60 volunteers on Sewa Day.

Rebecca Williams of the Canal & River Trust of Paddington, London, was cited for organising a Canal Clean Up project which involved approximately 60 people helping in different areas of the canal in West London. Activities included people of all ages, including children, walking along canal and picking up litter for almost 5 hours. In total 80 sacks of rubbish were collected and deposited in a special barge. Some really hazardous and filthy rubbish was collected and removed to ensure that this heavily-used area of natural beauty remained safe and clean for people to enjoy.

One judge commented “this was obviously a complex Sewa Day project to organise and I particularly liked the fact that children as young as seven years of age were involved despite it being quite dangerous (near a canal with all manner of rubbish). The impact of this exercise will be felt for quite a while and will, hopefully, encourage others to join in next year.”
